front end/back end?
How do you set up a front end/back end for Filemaker? Do you just set up a basic filemaker database with the data and perhaps some simple layouts, as though it were going to be used as is, then have your front end "Open Remote" to that database? Or is there a way to keep just the data seperate? If my first guess is correct, then can one computer run both programs, with the front end running in kiosk mode?
See this link for the basics: Convert to Seperation Model
Whether you design with data separation in mind or split a single file in two as described in that link, the resulting links between the files are the same.
And yes, both front and back end files can reside on the same machine.
